Customization in the Golf Industry
Over the past 5 years, the United States Golf Association (USGA), has imposed tough restrictions on golf club design, limiting the size, spring effect and now grooves in an attempt to rein in what they perceive as game altering technology. The argument for or against their position can be saved for another day, but the result of these limits has been making waves in the golf industry. If you ask the CEOs of the top 5 golf companies, "Has the USGA's restrictions on golf club design helped or hurt your business?" invariably, the answer would be "hurt". But to others the new regulations do not hurt, in fact, they help.
In the first 1/2 of this decade, Golf manufacturers worked hard to keep up with the advances in golf technology. It seemed that every year there was a new manufacturing barrier to be crossed, a new material that had to be integrated and the performance bar was ever being drawn farther and farther down the fairway. Now that the pace of technology in the golf industry has slowed somewhat, it is easier to manufacture equipment that performs as well or better than clubs purchased in the most prestigious pro shops.
Still 98% of the golf equipment purchased in the US is off the rack or standard. So if technology is not advancing the way it once did, what is the next performance break through? Certainly, it is customization. In a 2008 article on playing your best golf a major golf publication reported, "....customization may be the last and least know frontier in the golf equipment industry. Manufacturers that will be successful in the coming decades will embrace a customer-centric approach to fitting the golfer for improved play."

SOCCER SPORTS CAMP
In the summer of 2009 I took these photographs of the wonderful sports camp at my local University. I use a fun little blue colored VGA Carabiner Camera made by Argus called the bean sprout. It was a fantastic day and everybody was in a great mood. It seemed like there was about 400 or 500 people at the event.
I like to watch girls play soccer. I mostly like Big Ten Soccer, the girls here ranged from about 5 years old up to about 13 years old. They were highly energetic and were all having such a good time. It helped that the weather was really good and there weren't really any negative parents or coaches.
I highly recommend that everyone check out your local community for fun sports camps, youth leagues or anything that is fun and safe for young people to get involved with. These camps provide the kids with memories that last a lifetime.

Hi, it has been a long time since I have been able to post a new story. I have been so busy with work and everything else, you know how it can get.
There were quite a few stories I wanted to cover over the last year or two; ranging from the death of Evil Knievel, to the news of Joe Torre becoming the manager of the Dodgers.
Who could forget about Michael Phelps in Beijing 2008 when he broke all the Olympic records, and I just had to say how much I enjoyed watching the Winter events in Vancouver over the past months of 2010.

NHRA CHAMPIONSHIP DRAG RACING
Topic: auto racing
If you haven't noticed already, I love MUSCLE CARS and auto racing. NASCAR seems to get all of the attention these days, but the type of cars and racing speed that I really enjoy is usually found in the NHRA Championship Drag Racing circuit. Here are the profiles of two American racing legends.
Kenny Bernstein became a full-time professional Funny Car driver in 1979 with the Ray Alley owned "Engine Masters" Ford Mercury Cougar. Bernstein won his first Funny Car championship in 1985, and in 1990 began to drive in the Top Fuel Dragster class.
He became the first driver in any class to exceed 300 MPH in competition, and won his first Top Fuel championship in 1996, becoming the first driver in NHRA history to win a championship in both of the nitro classes.
Bernstein retired in 2002, but in September 2006 announced that he would return to racing in the Funny Car division the following season with the Monster Energy Dodge Charger. His return to active competition was not as successful as he had hoped, and he returned to retirement after the season ended. Check out Kenny's official website here >>> Kenny Bernstein Racing.
Gary Gabelich, a San Pedro native, began his racing career as a teenager, winning first place in the stock eliminator drag racing class at Santa Ana at age sixteen. At age nineteen he won the world's first jet dragster race, topping 250 MPH.
He was the first man to break into drag racing's seven-second bracket, driving a Double A Fuel dragster at 7.05 seconds in 1967. He drove the Beach City Chevrolet Corvette funny car to speeds over 200 MPH, a first for a Chevrolet funny vehicle powered by a liquid gas-hydrogen peroxide rocket engine.
On October 23, 1970 Gary set the land speed record on a dry lake bed at Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah with his rocket-powered vehicle "Blue Flame". He achieved an average speed of 622.287 MPH and a peak speed of 650 MPH, a land speed record that existed for almost 13 years.
Gabelich was seriously injured in the crash of an experimental 4 wheel drive funny car. Gabelich died in January 1984 in a motorcycle crash.
